Chalet La Moraine
- Sleeps 9 - 12
- Catered chalet
chalet has, of course, been entirely rebuilt inside. It has a charming
sitting-dining room under the rafters, with a wide balcony facing
Solaise. This room always seems to generate a very friendly atmosphere,
perhaps because of the good food that comes from its state-of-the-art
kitchen, perhaps because it isn’t huge and doesn’t have a TV, forcing
people to re-invent the ancient art of conversation (though it does have WiFi). Maybe it’s just
the unlimited wine.
La Moraine has six pleasant bedrooms: two twins which have views
towards Solaise, a double room with its own en-suite washbasin, and
three single bedrooms, a rarity in Val d'Isère. Two of these single
rooms actually have a large double bed, while the third
has a single bed plus a second bed
up a ladder. When one party fills the whole chalet, the guests in any or
all three of the single rooms can bring an extra person at half price.
Please note that flight seats may be limited on certain dates,
especially at peak season.
There are two baths, one shower and three wcs.
La Moraine is in the little hamlet of Le Joseray, opposite our chalet
Les Gnellets. The lifts, the pistes and the main bus stops are all at
most three minutes’ walk away, and you can ski back to within about
the only sound at night is an occasional moo from the neighbours.

Bedroom 2: Twin (11’6” x 9’9”) by Bedroom 1 with balcony.

can be used for two people when one party books the whole chalet.

Val d'Isère Resort Info
Val d'isère skiing
Val d'isère is justifiably ranked up there with the best resorts in the world. Lift linked with Tignes with which Val d'isère makes up L'Espace Killy, there are 300km of varied pistes to please everyone from beginners to pros. Expert skiers and snowboarders are particularly spoilt for choice in Val d'isère with the 1992 Olympic course, the 'Face', plenty of off-piste (remember to take a guide) and a world class snow park.
Val d'isère ski resort
Val d'isère has not only world class skiing but also boasts some world class après ski. The Folie Douce at the top of la Daille gondola is probably the most famous of Val d'isère's après haunts but is far from the only one. Restaurants on and off the mountain are pricey but good, which added to a good range of accommodation and lot's to do for the non-skiers makes it easy to see Val d'isère's attraction.
